Always Coming Back #Tanka #Poetry

A tanka written by Lee Sonogan

“Life is unpredictable. The words “always” and “never ever” cannot be uttered by mortals like us.” ― Anupama Garg, The Tantric Curse

Advent arbiter!

Come in over the transom,

Mind the woodchipper,

Cows come home held king’s ransom,

Unearthed maya gravedigger.

Coming back is the thing that enables you to see how all the dots in your life are connected, how one decision leads you another, how one twist of fate, good or bad, brings you to a door that later takes you to another door, which aided by several detours–long hallways and unforeseen stairwells–eventually puts you in the place you are now. – Ann Patchett
